(Application until December 18, 2018)

ESSEC Business School is offering a position of Assistant Professor or Associate Professor in Operations Research for its Paris-Cergy campus, to start in September 2019. Applicants should have a strong research focus and interests in Mathematical Programming and Discrete Optimization, with a PhD or doctorate in related fields. They should also demonstrate high leadership and autonomy in research and teaching, with publications in high-quality journals in Operations Research. Salary is competitive with the European Business Schools environment. 

The Professor will join the Information Systems, Decision Sciences and Statistics (IDS) department, and will be part of the OMOR (Operations Management / Operations Research) research cluster of ESSEC Business School that currently gathers 9 permanent members and 10 PhD students (see website ). 

The applicant should be able to teach both in English and French (or French within 2 years after the appointment), and in various ESSEC Business School Programs (bachelor, master, PhD, and potentially executive education for more senior profiles). Research interests and applications concern, but are not restricted to: prescriptive analytics, data-driven optimization, supply chain management, sustainable operations, network design, facility location, transportation and routing, e-commerce and digital business. Within the Mathematical Programming research field, a particular focus on decomposition methods for large-scale optimization problems and/or optimization under uncertainty will be considered as a plus. Ideal profiles combine innovation spirit, technical depth, and a strong interest in linking theory and practice through applications.

With its 3 campuses (Paris, Singapore and Rabat), ESSEC Business School is a top European Business School with international and very diverse faculty and student communities. The ESSEC Master in Management is ranked #4 worldwide by the Financial Times in 2018, and #4 in The Economist. The ESSEC Master in Finance is ranked #5 worldwide in the FT.

Professor of Statistics

(Assistant, Associate or Full)

ESSEC Business School, Singapore Campus

The Department of Information systems, Decision sciences and Statistics (IDS) at ESSEC Business School invites applications for a full-time faculty position in Statistics in its Singapore campus.

ESSEC is a leading European business school, a French “Grande Ecole” founded in 1907, with two main campuses, one in the Paris metropolitan area and another in Singapore. The interaction between the two campuses is regular and well-established. It allows permanent faculty in Singapore to benefit from exchanges and collaboration with permanent faculty in France. ESSEC offers training at all levels (BA, MSc, MBA, EMBA, PhD) with a specific emphasis on quantitative tools in its pedagogy and research. ESSEC’s programs are regularly ranked among the best in Europe (FT, The Economist, QS…).

Research is important for ESSEC faculty. We are looking for candidates whose research relates preferably to high dimensional statistics, mathematical statistics, and data science in general. The IDS department is in particular running a MSc in Data Sciences & Business Analytics, together with CentraleSupélec School of Engineering, also available on the Singapore campus since Sept. 2017.

To be considered, candidates should hold a Ph.D. in Statistics (or related) obtained before 2016, with a very good mathematical background, and show evidence of excellence both in research and in teaching. Support to research is key to ESSEC policy and faculty members enjoy an attractive incentive based research environment. Rank of appointment (assistant-associate-full) and salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Salaries are competitive at Singaporean levels.

The final closing date for applications is April 15, 2018.  Interviews will take place in Paris.

Candidates should send their application (CV + motivation letter + teaching statement + research statement + 2 reference letters) to:
